Jaguar softball progresses to postseason play

Extra-inning heroics by sophomore Jordan Burnham in the bottom of the 9th frame Saturday allowed the Johnson Jaguar softball team to punch its first-ever ticket to the postseason. On April 24, Johnson qualified for the playoffs via a nail-biting 4-3 win over Boerne Champion in a battle between two teams that needed a victory to keep their seasons alive. With the win, Johnson finished in third place out of District 26-5A. Leading the way for Johnson was Reagan Barrett who had two hits in the contest, while Burnham finished with a pair of RBIs. Meanwhile in the circle, Jaguar pitcher Kylie Goad struck out eight batters over the course of nine frames. Johnson advances to play Georgetown in a best-of-three bi-district playoff with game one at 7 p.m. Friday at Georgetown High. Game 2 and, if necessary, Game 3 will be played at Johnson High at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday. The Jaguar softball team, led by head coach Katy Snell, is the first spring team sport from Johnson High to qualify for the postseason.
